The City of Goodlettsville has been notified by the Tennessee Department of Health that one of several mosquito pools collected here has tested positive for West Nile Virus.

 

The pool in which the positive sampling came from was located near Memorial Drive and Peay Park.


There have been no reports of any human cases of the disease in the city.


As sporadic rains continue in the area, residents are reminded that it only takes a teaspoon of water to create breeding conditions around your home. Goodlettsville residents are urged to “Tip and Toss” items outside their homes frequently, to prevent stagnant water which could result in mosquito breeding. Residents should also follow these tips.


            • DEET - Use insect repellents that contain DEET when outdoors.

            • DRESS - Wear long sleeves, long pants, and socks when outdoors.

            • DUSK and DAWN – Although mosquitoes associated with West Nile can be active throughout the day, residents should take extra care during peak mosquito biting hours (from dusk to dawn) or consider avoiding outdoor activities during these times.

            • DRAIN – Drain standing water from flowerpots, gutters, buckets, pool covers, pet water dishes, and birdbaths.
